Garcia’s plight

For 1 013 days, the Government of Barbados has been trying to deport Raul Garcia back to Cuba.
For 1 013 days, the Government of Cuba has not budged, refusing to reopen their doors to a man who ran away back in 1964.
Attorney at law David Comissiong yesterday urged a High Court judge to seriously consider the island nation’s inaction in not allowing the Cuban refugee back, when she determined if Garcia’s detention by the Immigration Department was unlawful.
“Cuba’s actions speak louder than words,” Comissiong told the Supreme Court No. 6 yesterday during his four-hour-long closing argument in the civil lawsuit against the Minister responsible for Immigration (Prime Minister Freundel Stuart) and the Chief Immigration Officer.
